I and several of my employees were present for Bill's keynote at
SC05. Afterwards one of our boys referred to it as "Microsoft
Cluster F**K 2003"
I suspect that this is going to be a typical Microsoft venture: 80%
of what you want to do is trivial using their product. 20% of what
you *need* to do will be impossible with their product, and there
will be no way to extend or override their offering to get the
functionality you require.
Nonetheless, I suspect that I will be doing a project for some
customer based on this technology at some point in the future. Sigh.
My two cents.
